What if... to open Greek Film Festival
10 Oct 2013

Christoforos Papakaliatis' What If... will open the 2013 20th Delphi Greek Festival.

Set in modern Athens with the economic crisis as its backdrop, What if... shows two opposing perspectives in a Sliding Doors style of storytelling: One of a bachelor; the other of a couple in love.

With the economic crisis as its backdrop, What if… shows two opposing perspectives in a Sliding Doors style of storytelling: One of a bachelor; the other of a couple in love.

Demetris (the film’s director Christoforos Papakaliatis) shares his relatively normal life with a German Shepherd dog. When his canine friends begs to be walked one night, Demetris unwittingly stands on the precipice of a life-changing decision. If he goes out, he will meet Christina (Marina Kalogirou), the love of his life. If he stays at home, he will not.

"I want them [foreign audiences] to feel more supportive of Greeks [after watching this film] because, right now, the Greek people need a lot of support. 

But history has shown that Greeks are always winners," says filmmaker Christoforos Papakaliatis

Tickets on sale Friday 11 October for Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne through palacecinemas.com.au
